Ragi Biscuits - with Zero Maida / APF

Looking for any healthier snacks with delicious bite. I tried this recipe for my hubby.

Finger Millet - 1 cup
Wheat flour - 1 cup
Unsalter Butter - 3/4 cup , chilled and cut into small cubes
Powdered sugar - 1 cup , can be reduced to 3/4 cup if you feel the sweetness to be mild.
Baking powder - 2 tsp
Vanilla essence - few drops
Milk - little by little to form a dough , i used approximately 3 to 4 tbsp
Oil or butter - for greasing the baking tray

Preparation :
- Preheat oven @ 180'C
- Dry roast the finger millet flour until the nice aroma comes out.
- Once roasted , allow it to cool down.
- Then sieve both the flours along with baking powder and combine them well with spatula or whisk them.
- Now you can go ahead and add rouchougly chopped chilled butter and using your finger , rub it through the flour until it becomes crumble texture.
- Then you can add the powdered sugar , vanilla essence and 1 tbsp of milk at a time to form a smooth dough.
- Cover it and refrigerate the dough for 20 mins so that it becomes firm.
- In the workspace , dust some flour and roll the dough and cut it using cutter or any desired shape. ( I used the glass to cut the biscuits )
- Grease some oil on the baking tray and place these biscuits with 1" apart from each other.
- Bake for about 13 mins to get exact texture ( I got some crunchy texture )
